THE KILLER'S DAUGHTER. '
Many yearg ago, the community of
a hamlet in the South of France was
startled by a crime, rare, indeed, in
their quiet agricultural district. A
wealthy farmer was found dead, at
early morning, .within one hundred
yards of his own house. He had
been killed by blows administered
by a heavy stake, which lay near the
body, covered with blood; and all
his pockets had been rifled of their
contents, including a considerable
sum of money, which he was known
to have received the previous even
ing for some sheep Bold by him in
the neighboring market town.
When the awe and excitement cre
ated by this event had subsided a
little, every exertion was made by
the authorities to ferret out the per
petrator of the crime. A reward
was offered for the discovery of the
murderer, proclamation of which
bounty was made for several succes
sive Sundays at the church door. At
last son disclosures were made, im
plicating a young maji named La-rocbe--ttrplins
of eighteen years.
TV"' ' Kin who brought the charge
against young Laroche was a man of
the name of Landry a stranger in
the district, but who had lately been
appointed by the lord of the manor
as one of the keepers of his game
E reserves. Lnndry testified that he
ad seen Laroche cutting a stake
from a hedge on the afternoon previ
ous to the murder, and that he had
reported him for it, and, taking the
stake from him, had stuck it in the
bank of the hedge at a particular
spot The stake was the same one
that was found lying near the body
of the murdered farmer. Landry
could swear to it, because, after tak
ing it from Laroche, he had nicked
it in a peculiar way with his knife. ..
Now it so happened that the mur
dered farmer had many and influen
tial friends, while Laroche had but
few. Therefore, Laroche was con
victed of the murder, and sentenced
to be hanged on a certain day, at a
certain place ; until which time he
was placed for safe keeping in the
goal of the district, the third floor
of a large stone building, the lower
part of which M as a mill.
The prison consisted of a single
apartment, lighted Sy one small win
dow at a bight of about sixteen feet
from the floor. The side of the
building from which the window
looked ran sheer down to the water
of a daik and deep river, which crept
lazily by the mill, but. quickened its
pace a little lower down, until it
gradually became a rushing torrent,
leaping wildly on to its fall over a
perpendicular ledge of rocks. Bod
ies carried over that fall were said
never to have been recovered; and
it was a fixed notion among the coun
try people that there was a suctional
force in the whirlpool below, by
which everything falling into it was
carried down into the unexplored
abysses of the earth.
It was the day before that fixed for
the execution of young Laroche ;
and the priest of the parish, Father
A Hard by name, had been left alone
with the prisoner, in order to prepare
him, by the consolation of religion,
tor Ids approaching doom. To his
words of comfort Laroche listened
with humility, and iu silence, until
the good father began to dilate upon
. liis chances of forgiveness in the next
world for the terrible crime commit
ted by him. Then the prisoner elec
trified him by declaring his perfect
innocence of that crime a position
which he meant to maintain, he said,
with his latest breath.
To be brief, the youth of the pris
oner, his earnest asservations of in
nocence, and a watering doubt tf
his guilt which had all along troubled
Father Allard's mind, so wrought
upon the worthy man, that he at last
consented to commit himself to a
plan for giviu? the prisoner a chance
to escape, if not from death, at least
irom the ignominy of dying by the
hand g of the accursed hangman.
u If I die by the gallows, most rev
erend father,' said the voung man.
"a great sorrow. will some day fall
upon all concerned in my death.
lne real murderer is sure to be dis
covered, sooner or later; and then
shall have been a murdered man,
and the just retribution of heaven
will purf-uc my murderers. Aid me

Convinced of the young man's in
iiocence, Father Allard consented to
aid him in his escape. A moment
sufficed to carry the plan into execu
lion. 1 he prisoner gained the win
dow, and disappeared.
Parading in a straggling way out'
idc the building, went one of the
minor officers of justice a stolid
peasant, who had been placed there
by way of 6cntrv, and who, at this
moment, happened to be looking to
ward the river wall cf the mill. Jlis
sight nearly left him, as he afterward
stated, when he saw a man drop from
the goal window, strike on to a plat
form that protruded from a doorway
iu the second story, and rebounding
from that, fall into the water with i
heavy plunvrc, reappearing at iute:1
vals, until he was carried into the
The alarm was at once' given
Yelling officials rushed to the prison-
door, when thev found Father Al
lard alone seated on the chair, pale,
and as if just recovering from the
sight of some supernatural vision.
To the question put to him, he re
plied that, its he uas administering
the consolation of his holy office to
the prisoner, a voice sounded through
l he apartment, accompanied by the
shadow ot a mighty pair of wings,
on wlucu the prisoner mounted to
the ceiling of the apartment and was
no more seen by him. The voice, he
added, proclaimed the prisoner inno
cent, and that the real circumstances
of the murder would soon be made
It was a miracle; and the good
country people, ever ready to accept
that form of interposition", were easi
ly persuaded to do so on the present
Meantime, Laroche, when he leap
ed from the window, had forgotten
all about the platform. As he fell
upon it, he displaced a sack of grain,
which splashed into the dark waters
of the river, appearing to the eyes of
the bewildered sentry to be the body
of the man who had dropped from
the prison window. Laroche lay up
on the narrow platform, stunned by
hi heavy fall.
Spiride, the miller's daughter, saw
him fall. There was no one else in
the mill at the time. She drew him
behind the 6acks and grest heaps of
grain on the floor, and, having ad
ministered to him such, restoratives
as her young experience suggested,
threw some loose sacks over him, ana
told him to lie still. .
That night Spiride and her lover
Laroche and she had been lovers
about six months only made their
way to w here a boat lay moored be
low the falls, and embarking iu it,
were soon carried far beyond pur
suit. It was supposed by the affright
ed villagers that Fpiriuc must have
been carried from the plat form when
the body from the window above
bad been seen to strike. upon it ; and,
as the whirlpool below the toircnt
had never been known to give up its
dead, but little search was made for
her, and her friends resigned them
selves to mourning for her awful fate.
Legs thau six months after this,
Landry was tried for the murder of a
brother keeper, and was convicted
and hanged accordingly, ltevioas
to Ms execution, however, he made a
clean breast of it, to Father Allard,
confessing that he had murdered the
farmer for his money, killing him

singularly enough, suggested to him

at a distance of Boma fifty miles from
the one which he had been pastor for
so many years. 1 '' '( v
Shortly after his arrival there, his
duties led him to take a journey on
horseback, some miles into the inte
rior of the parish of which he had
charge. . Part of a road traveled by
him wound through a swampy forest
region; and, after a ride of several
miles, he came to a sluggish stream
that had formerly been spanned by
bridge, of which nothing . but the
abutments remained, however, The
priest turned his .horse's head and
rode along the bank of-the river,
hoping to find another bridge, or, at
least, a ford, by which he could cross
to the further side; nor had he gone
far when he discerned, by hoof
marks, a place where cattle seemed
to be in the habit of wading through,
or coming" to drink, mrv"" tv
: The river appeared to oe shallow;
so he urged his unwilling horse into
it, and had got about halfway across
when the animal began to plunge
and struggle . violently, sinking, at,
the same time, aa if drawn down
by some invisible power. Aware,
now, that he had fallen into one of
those quicksands which are not un
common in that part of France, the
good father knew that to throw him
self from his horse would be certain
death, as the water was not deep
enough to swim in. and the hungry
sand at-be bottom , was gaping for
him.'. Ha 'held up his horse, tliere
fore, and ahouted for help.
The water was srainins: upon mm,
as the terrified horse sank deeper and
deeper in the; treacherous stream.
Up, up it came, until it reached the
saddle-flaps, and then his knees ; and
he had ' given himself up for lost,
when distant shouts came in response
to his, which were growing feebier
with each repetition.
And now a man burst hia .way
through the brushwood on the river
bank, and laying Ids axe upon a tall,
slender young tree, cuts it down with
four or five rapid strokes, leaning it
so it falls out upon the water, ita top
most branches just brushing the
sinking horseman in its fall. ; Grasp
ing the boughs with all - his remain
ing strength, the priest was drawn to
the bank by the woodsman, fainting
and senseless, . however, and with
hardlv a visible spark of life.
When Father Allard recovered
consciousness, he found himself in a
small, but comfortable room, . See
ing him open his eyes a buxom
young woman, who was bathing his
temples, uttered an exclamation of
joy, calling him by name ; and now,
as bis dizzy senses brightened, what
was his surprise to find bis attendant

Presently Laroche, Who had been
engaged with the assistance of some
of the neighbors in oxtricatiiig the
priest's horse, Came In'; and the meet
ing was an nflecung one between the
two. each of whom . had been thns
wonderfullr appointed by Provi
dence to preserve the other. ' '
"My conscience is clear now," said
Father Allard. "Heaven has . surely
pardoned the little fiction framed by
me : else wnv ' i
"But hold, reverend father," cried
Laroche, interrupting him; "there

words further to add upon this sub-

as forester upon an estate, was en

','rsc of Bnmble Bees.' 4 '
" Bovs think it glorious fun to fight
bumble bees, but thev should not be
encouraged in the warfare. Bumble
bees, like all the hymenoptera, play
an important part in the great field
of Nature. The vein-winged insects
wh'ch fly from flower to flower do
not injure or destroy the flowers, but
make them productive by distribut
ing their pollen. They also rid us of
our lunumerauie noxious caterpillars
and other insects, which they convert
into wholesome food for their off
spring. The ordinary honey bee per
forms its work well in the fertiliza
tion of white clover, but its proboscis
is not loag enough to enable it to
reach the nectaries of red clover. For
the fertilization of the red clover we
must rely to a great extent upon the
bumble bee. Darwin baa called at
tention to the intimate connection
between the number of cats in a sir
en district and the yield of red clover
seed. I he mice destroy bumble bees,
and the cats destroy the mice ; there
fore, the more cats, the more bumble
bees, and the more bumble bees, the
greater is the red clover yield. In
order to make the red clover grow
more abundantly in .New - Zealand
than it does, some enterprising gen
tlemen are talking of importing colo
nies of bumble' bees from Lagland.
Our young friends will thus see how
earnestly the bumble bee is desired
in countries where he works not

persons Keeping mem snouia see
their bees often, ana Know at au
times their actual condition. To do
this satisfactorily, we mast have the
movable frame hive in some form,
and be able to open it and take" "out
th6 frames at pleasure. "Eut," wys
one, ""the bees will 6ting. I should
not dare open a hive full of bees."
Yes, we know the bees will sting if
yon are -careless, and 'in taking out
the frames you hit,them one. against
another, thus ' jarring ami making
the bees and honey. ,. But if you will
be careful,' and use a little amoks
when needed, there will be bo trou
ble. When you wish to open a hive
step to the back side o(iC so aa not
to interfere with the bees flying out
and in; remove the cap, and with
your, knife or .-something else, pry
gently on the honey-board. ' If the
weather is warm the propolis will be
soft, and the honey-board will come
off without jarring a particle. Have
on hand some smoke, and as soon as
you raise the honey-board blow in
some to keep them quiet Begin two
or three frames from the one you
wish to take out, and with your knife
or fingers move them away, a little,
then take out the one .you ' wish.
After the first you can take out any
you wish by setting one down on the
outside of the hive. With the blacks
and hybrids yon will want smoke ;
but as far as my experience goes,
with the pure Italians yon will need
I will describe a smoker which with
me works like a charm ; and what suits
me I think will suit .any one. . , Take
a piece of sheet-iron and make a tube
eight inches long and two inches in
diameter. This is easily done with
small rivets. used by tinmen and
almost any person can make it Now,
make a plug tor each end, tapering
each down to a point Bore a quarter-inch
hole in the plugs and cover
the large ends of the plugs with wire
cloth, which should be bent so a3 to
raise them in the centre ; this keeps
trash from filling the boles in the
plugs. Next one end is nailed fast,
and the other is left movable, so that
it may be taken out when the pipe or
tube thus prepared is obe filled with
decayed wood, which is to be kindled
at the open end of course." You yet
want a handle, which is made by
boring a two-inch hole in a piece of
one-half inch plunk, and shaping it
to suit you. Then slip the tube into
it, and it may be fastened by insert
ing a nai! between the wood and the.
tube. One plug should be shaped
convenient to be held in the mouth
when blowing ' smoke through - the
tube. When you wish to use the
smoker insert the plug made for the.
mouth-piece, and then you can smoke
the bees sufficiently in a siort time.
By adding fuel occasionally you can
keep it burning any length of lime,
keeping one end open when not in
use. Do not use tobacco for smoke,
as it stupefies the bees and makes
them irritable for several days after,
Now a word for the Italians. I find
them very peaceable when compared
with the black bees. I can open
hive of Italians at any time . when
they are raising brood without smoke
and not have one offer to sting me,
unless by some mishap I jar them so
as to arouse them, which takes con
siderable. Besido this you can find
the.tmeen readily; the young bees
do not drop from the"ddm asth
black ones do, and as fars my expe
rience goes, they will make one-third
more honey. I have one stock of
Italians that gave me one good swarm
and 125 pounds box honey the first
season. The Italians, to be pure,
should all have three bands, and some
will occasionally show .the fourth.

PATENT glXYCK MOI LD WHITE
To the Ladies of Ilaury and Adjoining
WE ASK TI1E rRttlLF.CE OF SOLIC
iting your attention to' our new quality
of Clothes Line Wire, manufactured in such a
manner, of white metallic substance, that it is
prevented fi m ever corrodinsr or changing
from its beaut' ful white color during; any num
ber of years. We guarantee it to be perpetual
ly infallible against rust, and afier you have
used it we are confident that yop will concur
wiih the statements of thousands of families
load in its praise who have it in use.
The following are tbe advantages gained oy
Sins; these Patent bite n ire not uea Lines:
1st. They are truly an ornament wherever
placed, always retaining that shining whiteness,
ar forever clean and never btve to be taken in,
no matter what tbe weather may be, water or
irost cannot effect them.
24. Tbe durability of this Ware Line is one of
tbe greates. considerations, as Jt will last trom
thirty to fifty years, acd during that time you
will wear out a great many common lines, be
sides being obliged to put up prith an immense
amount of trouble with them.
3d. After it is put np and wiped off it is al
ways clean, while a rope lins is more or less
exposed to dust and dirt and must be wsbed
before it is used or it will soil the c'.othes.
4th. Bv actual experience it is found to be by
far the cheapest clothes line, beside; its great
convenience. This will last a lifetime.
5th. You can never hang it too heavily with
6th. Another of the chief advantazea of tin
line over tbe rope line is, that clothes ot any kind
will not freeze to it in cold weather, and the
finest fabrics can be removed at any time with
out injury. A sope line will always absorb
more or less moisture from tbe clothes, and in
cold weather will freeze through and through.
and thin articles cannot be removed without a
liability of tearinz them. W bile tbe wire beinir
of a pure metallic substance does not absorb
the slightest moisture, consequently there can
not be frost enough formed to cause an adhesion.
and even tue finest gauze can be removed Irom
the line without injuring it in the least.
Ttb. The alkalies now being used in the pat
ent soaps have net the least effect on th White
Wire Lines. 1 hey dry quit-K and escape.
btb. It will save you its price in spring you
time and trouble every six months yoa own it.
Vth. It never will break and drop clothes in
to the mud. Tbe old rope line is frequently the
cause of a whole dav extra washing. Tbisone
thing alone is enough to condemn tbe old style
ol lines fkrever. and call into requisition an ar
ticle tbat ia free from all such provoking annoy
ances, something strong, clean and durable.
Get the Patent Everlasting White Wire Line,
then you have it right. . .
